Question
In Final Draft 8 / 7, characters or other text automatically change to character names.

Answer

You may have the auto cast list generator enabled in the character element.

Go to Document > Page Layout > Options. If the box for Automatically Update Cast Element is checked, uncheck it. You'll have to manually retype the character names where this occurred, but any new character paragraph will be correct.
